 12 countries to simplify travel processes and cut costs.  Motorola has
 deployed Sabre BTS on its corporate Intranet for use by more than
 8,700 travelers.

 far exceeded the company's original forecast.  With Sabre's installations in
 Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, India, Malaysia, Indonesia,
 Australia, China, Vietnam and the Philippines; Motorola Asia estimates that
 its travel and entertainment costs will be reduced by 30 percent.
     "Motorola was looking for more than just a robust end-to-end travel
 solution like Sabre BTS for our Asian markets.  We needed a service provider
 with a reputation for quality global support and one that fits with our
 overall corporate philosophy and technology direction.  Sabre had both," Paul
 Rode, corporate vice president and director of finance for Motorola.  "Our
 users have found the transition to Sabre BTS simple, convenient and attractive
 because it is such a powerful tool.  Despite the complexity of being deployed
 in multiple countries, Sabre was very flexible in handling Motorola's unique
 travel policy.  We have been pleased with Sabre BTS' ability to efficiently
 handle a wide range of itineraries across a variety of environments."

 travel arrangements on their computers with the reassurance of 24-hour access

 planning and purchasing to expense reporting and reimbursement.

 travelers while reducing total travel costs for the corporation," said Nancy
 Raynor, senior vice president and general manager of Sabre BTS.  "This
 12-country deployment underscores our system's flexibility and capabilities in
 dealing with complex international travel and multi-country deployment.
 Motorola Asia is on the cutting edge of travel management with a strong vision
 and a corporate culture focused on results.  We are extremely pleased that we
